Who Can Sleep With This News?!

Here's the finished Sherman's March quilt that is now on it's way back home. Don't we all love our personal quilt holders?
Last night was a sleepless night for me. I woke about 3am and fired up the computer in hopes I'd find sleep soon thereafter. As I was reviewing my email subject lines I was seeing words like "Congrats!", "You lucky devil" and "YIPPEE." What little sleep I had in my eyes I could see I apparently won something my mind was racing. What had I won?!
OMG!! I feel so lucky to have won three GO! dies from Tonya's Sewing Room and Accuquilt! Do you think I would be able to go back to bed to sleep now?! Who can sleep after receiving this awesome news!
The photo was taken from Accuquilt. I've requested Winding Ways, Rose of Sharon and Hexagons as my die selection.
Today is Friday! On Friday at the Accuquilt Facebook page they give away a GO! for simply filling out the survey with your answer to a random question they ask. The winner is always sent an email on Friday afternoon to tell them if they have won. What are you waiting for? Get over there and enter!!!

Congratulations on the new dies for your GO Mary! Have fun! I would have chosen the same ones (if I had a GO AND if I had won.)

I love that quilt, it reminds me of Christmas.
I have to go through my books and find something nice, but simple to make for a christmas quilt.

Your quilting really finishes off this quilt. The owner should be very pleased. Congratulations on your winnings. I keep trying to win a GO! and have already completed the survey - fingers crossed, toes crossed, prayers sent forth, etc!

Little Lady Patchwork said...

Ughhh! I hate sleepless nights and they are happening all to frequently for me. Busy, crazy mind I guess!

Anyway, congrats on winning the dies! I know that you will put them to good use. Someday, someday I will show up on your doorstep to use them :0)

Take a NAP,
Stefanie

Great looking quilting! That pattern reminds me of Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt from a couple years ago--must be the chain of squares.

Congrats on winning more dies--that is awesome. I've jumped over and entered today's giveaway, thanks for the reminder :)

Mary Lou Casada said...

Wow! Is Sherman stunning! :-D It was pretty on the rack, but the total effect is really wonderful; great work there!
Is that a prize to DIE for?!?! (Snort!) Congrats! I'd seen the Accu entry on FB early this morning! I'm hoping for a GO myself -- and I thought sure I was too "old school" for it. But having seen hexies and winding ways and little baskets...Yeah, gotta have one! Gonna try to win it!
Blessings!
Mary Lou

Mary, I saw yesterday that you had won but didn't email you as I was waiting for you to be surprised, LOL. Congratulation my friend. I hope you get your new dies soon and are able to enjoy them to the fullest. The finished quilt is overwhelmingly beautiful Mary, you amaze me. Hugs coming your way!
